Pet Peeves

  1. What is your pet peeve? Mine is simple.......
    Rude People. I just don't get it. Why do people have to be rude? Even when they are rude to me, it is hard for me to be rude back. I repeat........I just don't get it.

    What is your pet peeve?

    Rude people would be near the top of my list, I also really hate people who are late, I have to be punctual, it drives me nuts when people are like: 'I didn't think you would mind a few minutes'!

    another pet peeve I have is when a car pulls out in front of you, only to turn about 100 feet ahead..........

    . . . . talking during choir rehearsal. (I'm an organist/ choir director for a small Lutheran church.)

    Our choir only has about 45 minutes of rehearsal time before the service. Inevitably the one section of the choir chats and chats and chats while I rehearse the other section(s).

    I'm fairly patient about the whole deal. I'm also able to get everyone's attention when it's time to go over their parts. But when a section isn't singing. . . . geeze. . . . . chat, chat, chat, chat. . . .

    But, you know. . . the choir sounds great! They do put in their time, energy and talent!

    I've been doing this gig for over 18 years. The time is come near for me to move on, I think. . . . I appreciate the music and the creative outlet. But it's getting old. The sad thing is that there's a severe shortage of organists and choir directors!!! That factor, alone, has kept me loyal despite strong urges to leave (at times in the past).

    I hate it when I talk to my ex about our son's medical stuff and I use everyday terms (he has no medical background) and he repeats it back in "medical" terms..... like he's soooooo smart.

    I hate it when at the checkout counter, the person in front of you holds their purchases in their hands, so you can't load the belt with your stuff. Don't they know the conveyor belt will STOP when the sensor light hits an item???

    I can top that...

    People that pull out in front of you and cause you to slam on your brakes.... and it was clear for a freaking mile behind you!

    People who drive slow in the passing lane also irritate me. If you don't like the way I look on your bumper, then GET OVER!

    I dont have pet peeves... I have major freaky hatreds!!

    basically, its sticky med carts or counters, or med bottles... what effort does it take to wipe it??
    bottles that are not labled on the lids as well as the side (it really speeds things up when youre new)
    dealing w/ parents that like to start arguments 20 minutes before you have to go to work
    the whole 'white shoe' policy at nearly every job I've had...
    today-- the policy can bite me...I'm wearing my new combat boots-- they're warm, and theres supposed to be 3 inches of the white stuff outside (which I dont really hate per se.... I just hate it when I have to drive to work which becomes the luge track of death, or, the staten island bobsled track-- and my bobsled's on wheels!)
    being more than 15 minutes late for start of a shift.... I can deal with a little lateness, as theres no parking... and I always give a VERBAL report... as well as a written, so that EVERYONE knows whats going on... and I'm always there a half hour EARLY.... unlike people who DONT LIKE TO COUNT NARCS TOGETHER... grr...
    the Narc sheets at my new job are set up so that the removals and the start and finish count are on the same sheet-- its a little screwy..
    people who prescribe junk like accuzyme(enzyme debriding oint) to a bedsore which clearly can be treated w/ a w-d dsg, and then not changing the order once the wound turns into a bloody mess of mangled meat.
    or-- people who get the ointment onto the skin- same w/ dakins soln, it eats the skin away so fast... and then, dont treat it properly!!!
    the jerk who invented pantyhose.... I hate him
    ok... enough hatred for now...
    (pulls out fire extinguisher, and blasts this responce...)

    Oy.... where to begin??????

    Telephone you can afford to pay someone HOW MUCH to call me to ask for donations for you????

    A DRIBBLE of milk left in the milk it too hard to change the bag????? (we buy milk in bags not jugs)

    Empty toilet paper rolls.........ummm honey, you may stand to pee, but you still sit to do other things......but of course it must be the ghost.....

    FALLING into the toilet in the middle of the night.......another one of those things that the ghost "must" have done......

    Going to get that chocolate bar you "hid" in case of emergency....and ITS GONE.............must'a been the ghost honey........... did I mention its the wrong time for there NOT to be chocolate close at hand?????........


    *but I'm sure he'll remember to pick up more milk and toilet paper while he's out getting me some chocolate....hee hee.... ..... :kiss

    People who open their car doors as wide as they can go, into the path of oncoming traffic.

    people who whine about how little money they have...when their income is double my own.

    people who ring and say "Is this so-and-so?" like I'm gonna tell you who I am when I don't know who the flying frog you are!!

    people who spend their lives cleaning their houses and then come to mine and sniff disdainfully at the cyclone disaster area that resides there. I have kids and a life, so what if there's dirty dishes in the diswasher, how does it affect your life any?!! Oh I forgot you don't have one...

    I've had a rough day, can ya tell? Sorry,peace, love and mung beans to all

    People who talk though the whole movie.

    ...or someone who calls you to see if you're watching your favorite show "did you see what just happened" duh but now I just missed the end thanks for calling for nothing!

    My ulitimate driving peeve is people who do not know how the 4 way stop works.

    Weird chewing noises of all kinds...I hate it when meals are quiet and you can hear everyone including yourself chewing

    The burning coffee at work and the endless smell of it, pot after pot. I really wonder where all of it goes it isn't humanly possible for everyone to drink that many cups.
